Still Floating


lost affinity

absence of astronomy

finding a way through the vacant sea

 

drifting along without

a sail

let alone a motor

 

self-exile sentencing automatic

wandering to where

whatever a home is

    Wow! What a great poem!

    • Sean Lynch says:

      Thanks Sophie, and thank you for reading and responding to my poetry for quite some time now. By the way, I’ve read some of your series and I have to say it is engaging. I can’t say I’ve read all of it, though, because you are so damn prolific.

  3. Rhythm is superb.
    Moreover, though your style of poetry is usually economic, saying less, this one particularly I think is as important for what it doesn’t say as for what it does.

    • Sean Lynch says:

      Thanks, this poem doesn’t say a lot. I’d say that some people might find it too broad, but maybe that is why it is more relatable than my other poems.

  4. Sean,

    Absence of astronomy works beautifully. As a feeling, image, verb.

    Thanks for reading my blog by the way.

    Best,
    Ana
